11/13/12 - Dream Souvenir


Before I explain the photo, let’s first welcome our newest, wonderful reader:  Denise, the self-proclaimed Krazy Kraft Lady.  Denise is one of the most talented crafters I’ve come across.  I love her KKL Primitive and folkart handmade products, and I bet you will too!  I can only aspire to create her masterpieces.  Welcome Denise!


In my effort to downsize, simplify and save for an RV, with very rare exception I have purchased nothing this past year that wasn’t consumable – and I mean nothing, nada, zilch, zip (not counting business expenditures that have been recovered in resale at our Knick Knacks booth of course).

The dream dove in the picture above is one of those exceptions.

TAKE FLIGHT TOWARD YOUR DREAMS


How perfect is that?  It was my sole purchase and only souvenir from our recent stay at a B&B.  It captures the essence of the journey I’ve been on this past year so it came home with me.  It will reside in my RV one day too. :)

    1. @ Sandra - when I see something I "want" I take a picture of it and put it on my pictures scrolling screensaver for awhile. It shows up every now and then, gives me smile, and I didn't spend any money. When I get tired of it, I delete it. :)

    1. @ Ann - One of my young niece's is learning the difference between want and need (with a little help from her mommy, grin). Recently she was in a store and declared in a very loud voice (regarding a doll)... "But I NEEEEEEED it Mommy." LOL.

    1. @ Wendy - thank you! I've been called a lot of things in my lifetime (LOL), but first and foremost I want my life to make a difference so this means the world to me. Thanks for all you do and for all you so freely share on your blog. Love it! :)
